Since 1986, the Barrington Children's Choir (BCC) has been giving local children the opportunity to participate, learn and perform in a high-level organized choir.
Auditions for the 2018/2019 Choir Season will take place on May 17th & 18th from 4:30 to 6:00 pm
Over one hundred thirty choristers participate in BCC each year. Children in 2nd Grade through High School are invited to audition for these choirs:
- Grace Notes - grades two through four, designed to inspire the youngest voices to sing with beauty while laying the foundation for continued choral training.
- Prelude - grades three through seven, training and performing choir designed to prepare choristers for Chamber Choir.
- Chamber Choir - grades six through twelve, primary performing choir, most experienced and focused choristers.
- Bel Canto Choir - elite ensemble open to any chorister grades nine through twelve.
- AcaBellas - auditioned acapella group, select members grades eight through twelve.
Choirs rehearse weekly and perform at the annual Winter & Spring concerts, as well as numerous civic, church and corporate events. The choirs typically tour every other year. The Chamber Choir participates in both domestic & international festivals, while the Prelude Choir travels domestically.
The organization is managed by a staff of choral directors & accompanists, an Administrative Director, and a Board of Directors that manage a high level of parental involvement which focuses on volunteerism and fundraising events.
